Frequently Asked Questions

Curious about Community Church? Check out some questions others have asked--hopefully the answers will be helpful for you. If you have questions that aren't answered below, please don't hesitate to ask!

    what time are the weekend worship services?

    We offer four weekend services with plenty of opportunity to worship with each other! Consider attending more than one service style to experience all that Community Church has to offer.


    Traditional services, led by Pastor John, are held Sundays at 8:30 am and 11 am. Pastor Rich leads Current, or contemporary services, Saturdays at 6 pm and Sundays at 10:30 am.

    what should I wear to church?

    You’ll find some people wearing their Sunday best and some people wearing shorts or jeans—and often they are sitting in the same pew! The bottom line is we care about you, not your clothes. If you’re a sports fan, wear your black and gold, and you’ll fit right in. 


    What do the pastors like to be called?

    Pastor John, Pastor Rich or Pastor Jim would be fine… although John, Rich or Jim is great, too.

    What is available for my kids during worship?

    Your kiddos will be well cared for while you worship at Community Church! They are welcome to join you for services, but they might enjoy what we have planned for them even more.


    For infants and toddlers, a family room, complete with audio for the traditional services, is located adjacent to the sanctuary and is equipped with nursing and changing areas. A full-staffed childcare room is located in Room 120 for children 8-36 months.

    Community's Kids 8:30 Experience - Kids in pre-k (and potty trained) - 5th grade will be dismissed from the Traditional worship children's moment to Fellowship Hall for a super worship experience designed just for them! Experience songs, prayer and praise. Please sign your child in before the start of the service.


    Community's Kids Worship 10:45/11:00 – Kids age 3 1/2 (and potty trained) - 3rd grade can join us in Fellowship Hall for a time of worship that is modeled after adult worship services. At kids worship, all kids will get to experience what it means to worship God and learn ways to connect to Him.
